Rome teen drowns in Ala.

FORT PAYNE, Ala. -- A Georgia man is dead following a weekend drowning in northeast Alabama.

Officials say 19-year-old Ricardo Perez of Rome was found in nine feet of water in Little River Canyon Saturday night.

Perez and friends were reportedly trying to swim across Little River when Perez went under the water earlier in the day.

Gail Bishop, superintendent of the Little River Canyon preserve, said Perez was the first person to drown in the canyon this year.
